Sorry, I didn't mean it like that. I was just wondering if you could create your own myth and see how far it goes?

I heard it! In 0:55 someone (maybe John by the content of the sentence) said:

"Yeah, Paul is dead, and he never paid me back those three pounds I give him..." or something like that.

Well, the Paul is Dead rumour started in 1969 I believe so it couldn't be a deberate reference. If it is actually in there then it's juts a pretty weird coincidence. Coincidences don't prove anything though, especially not something as silly as someone being replaced by an exact double. I wonder how many Paul twins there are in Liverpool?

Considering how hard it is for them to cast a Paul look alike in film, I would say not many.

One of the earliest radio broadcasts about the hoax can be heard on my site. If you are really interested you can hear it. It's about 20 minutes long. http://www.thebeatlesrarity.co.....l-is-dead/. There is also a somewhat interesting book disecting the hoax called The Walrus Was Paul that isn't too hard to find. It's amazing how many "so called" clues (actually hundreds!) are interpretted in the whole thing. a-hard-days-night-john-1

I was going to say as much. There's a little-known story about a girl whom Paul allegedly got pregnant in the early 60s, and was paid by NEMS to keep quiet. Here's the entry from The Beatles Diary by Barry Miles (a friend of Paul's and his biographer), about 10 July 1964, the Liverpool premiere of A Hard Day's Night:

The only sour note to the day came from the uncle of Anita Cochrane, who plastered Liverpool with 30,000 leaflets recounting his niece's affair with Paul and its outcome. Anita, an 18-year-old Beatles fan, discovered that she was pregnant after partying with Paul at Stuart Sutcliffe's flat in Gambler Terrace. Unable to contact him by registered letters and telegrams, she eventually retained a lawyer who threatened legal action. Allegedly, it was only then that NEMS responded, offering her £5 a week maintenance. Brian Epstein is said to have intervened personally and offered £5,000 in exchange for renouncing all claims on Paul (published figures vary depending on source). The agreement said that Anita must never bring Paul to court or say or imply that he was the father of her child, Philip Paul Cochrane, nor must she ever reveal the terms of the agreement. All seemed to be well until today's civic reception for The Beatles when her outraged uncle intervened.

I think it was not uncommon for Epstein to have to do step in for some damage limitation while The Beatles were on tour. Those boys put it around quite a bit, and girls are said to have fallen pregnant on a number of occasions. Keeping it quiet would never be an option these days, with the mass media, tabloid press and rolling news channels.

There's a book idea in there somewhere. "The Lost Children of The Beatles"?

Not at all. In her book Cynthia Lennon says she and John never used any contraception* - never even discussed it until she fell pregnant with Julian. The impression I get is that they screwed their way across the world from 1963-66.

I noticed another PID reference in Come Together. The part where John says "one and one and one is three" might be a reference to Paul missing. Also, the part where he says "So good looking because he's so hard to see" or something like that, can't remember.

Note by Ahhh Girl: posts 31-42 were a separate thread and were merged into this one on 4 May 2014.

Those are references to John not showing up to the studio near the end, as in he didn't care much about music, and he was kind of annoying the other bands members. "One and one and one is three", John isn't there, and "...he's so hard to see", they can't see him, he's not there. Each verse has to do with a beatles member.

When I Twish And Shout, it makes the Girl say "What Goes On?", and than I say, "I do this Here, There and Everywhere", and than she finishes by saying "Honey Don't".

I believe it's the first one, because it says "He come grooving up slowly", referring to his writing ability, saying it too sometime to get reconize as a great song writer.

Well you know, this isn't official, this is simply my view on it, and to be honest, it seems perfectly accrute, but I made a mistake I believe the verse we were talking about was actually about George, and the one before George's were it mentions, "Hold him in your armchair you can feel his diease" is actually the one about John, the first being about Ringo, and the final verse is obviously Paul.

 

Sorry, about the mistake, it's what I thought at first, but than I relized "hey, that can't be right". a-hard-days-night-george-9

Yeah, we did. But don't worry, I thought nobody on this forum knew who George Harrison is...
